“Amazing spot right in the town centre with endless view and garden”
January 2, 2015 NEW
We loved Castellino Menaggio, Andrea the owner welcomed us late afternoon and showed where to park the car. Parking is approx 100 mt from the house entry.
Don't know where to start... the flat is absolutely stunning, we had gorgeous time enjoying the lake view and fireplace. The equipment is absolutely excellent, shampoo and soap and toilet paper were ready, comfortable bed and fully equipped kitchen with Italian coffee machine and cups ready for us, the warm welcome made the difference!
We simply fell in love with this property, it's like a stamp on the postcard!
I would absolutely recommend this place and certainly will come back...
From the Owner
“I loved CASTELLINO MENAGGIO since the first time I went in, it was November 2011 a rainy day... When I reached the living area I was simply shocked by the lakeview... simply amazing... I renovated carefully the interior layout of the house maintaining the original features such as fireplace and original windows and doors, new flooring and roof insulation and decoration. Now became a cosy retreat for couples, friends and small families thanks to its 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The private garden with BBQ area, table and chairs allow guests enjoying outdoor meals especially breakfasts and dinners. The location is strategic, walking distance to the beach, cafes, restaurants and shops make this flat the ideal property for a perfect holiday on lake Como.”
